  • Description

    India in Slow Motion, by Mark Tully, brings out a great understanding of the contrasts, contradictions, tragedy, humour, and the overwhelming resilience that make India the country it is today.

    Summary of the Book

    In this though-provoking account, Mark Tully brings out his passion for understanding India as a dynamic nation with all its faults and frailties. He delves into the intricate details that make this country function in spite of all the odds. He discusses subjects as diverse as bonded child labour, religious strife, political corruption, Sufi mysticism, Kashmir issue and several other funny, startling, poignant and humane faces of India. The book, perhaps, challenges all the preconceived notions of India, by refuting the "corrupt India" image, and asserts that change is indeed possible for a better and more peaceful nation.
